This year marked several important victories for credit unions in the legislative, regulatory and legal arenas, all victories that will help credit unions better serve the 115 million Americans who are credit union members. Throughout the year, CUNA, Leagues and credit union members brought their issues to policymakers in face-to-face meetings, letters, social media and other forms of communications, all on behalf of the credit union difference.
“From historic bipartisan votes to victories in court that will help credit unions increase their service to communities, none of what we’ve accomplished this year would have been possible without consistent, fierce, bold 360-degree advocacy from CUNA, our Leagues and credit unions,” said CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan. “We made our voices heard, and most importantly, people listened, resulting in a better operating environment for credit unions than existed even 12 months ago. This year serves as a blueprint about what can be accomplished when the credit union system speaks as one voice, and it’s put us into position to go even further in 2020.”
